An enriching experience for both lecturers and students


During the course of this summer semester, the Department of Tourism has had the honor of welcoming seven international guest lecturers from four different countries, who all taught courses within the bachelor and master degree programmes.

  • Dr. Geoffrey Bird, Royal Roads University, Canada
  • Professor Bill Gartner, University of Minnesota, USA
  • Dr. Kyriaki Glyptou, University of the Aegean, Greece
  • Professor Desiderio García, Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
  • Ashraf Hassib, M.A, Vancouver Island University, Canada
  • Dr. Olga Junek, Victoria University, Melbourne
  • Thi Van Nguyen, M.A., Vietnam National University, Ho Chi Minh City

It has been an enriching experience for both lecturers and students. It provided students with the opportunity to look at tourism from different international perspectives and helped grow their understanding of the global nature and interdependencies of tourism. We would like to take the chance to thank all our guest lecturers for their commitment, which we highly appreciate.
